Mango & Raspberry!

Hi, I want to buy mango and raspberry sorbet in bulk for a party dessert and am having a hard time finding it.
Haagen Daaz pints are the only option I've found and I need a few gallons of each, so that gets pricey?
Ideas please!!!!

      Talenti can be found in Ralphs, Vons, WFM, Gelson's & Target.
      Whether they all carry the flavors you want, and in a size any larger than a pint is the only question.
      TJs also has raspberry sorbet, again by the pint, and it tends to be a bit less expensive than Talenti's.

        TJ's also currently has mango sorbet by the quart -- which isn't "bulk" but at least it's bigger than pints. I think it was around $4 or $5.

        1. re: Bjartmarr

          TJ's also has delicious raspberry sorbet.

          Whoops, Carter already said that!

      1. Pretty sure Talenti does mango. There are also other sorbets at Surfa's.

        1. 1) if what you're talking about is a quality product that actually gets its flavor from real raspberries and/or mangos, it will be pricey.

          2) if you arrive at the point where you are resigned to paying up, you might consider contacting the owners of gelato lounge (in MDR) and asking them to make a few gallons or raspberry sorbetto and mango sorbetto to order for you.

          3) if you are still looking around for lower cost options, maybe try the asian markets like ranch 99.

            To add to this, I was at Sweet Rose Creamery yesterday (they might've had a mango flavor; but I can't recall). They specifically state that they need at least 72 hrs for bulk orders, so, to the OP, if you do decide to go w/ a custom order, make sure you leave yourself and the shop plenty of time....

              to add to this, the last time i was at the Gelato Lounge it appears that they have a "portable" freezer that can be transported.
              dunno what your freezer capacity is, but this may be something you need. . .

                Sweet Rose has a Mango Frozen Yogurt this month and a lot of stone fruit and some berry flavors. If the flavor you're interested is available/ in season, they can make it for you even if it's not on their specials board. Minimum orders are a half gallon (I think), and they have catering capabilities (like a portable freezer), and may even be able to "serve" at parties (if you're also interested in things like sundaes).

            2. Fosselman's can do bulk sorbet for you upon request. Yes, both mango and raspberry.
